"In Dreams Awake" Trex Art Exhibit
August 30 - September 25

Between 1480 and 1505 the Flemish artist Hieronymus Bosch created one of the masterpieces of European art history. Entitled The Garden of Earthly Delights, this imaginative tour de force portrays Bosch’s vision of the Garden of Eden, the earthly plane and the afterlife. The actual meaning of Bosch’s painting has confounded viewers and art historians throughout the ages with art historians and critics generally interpreting the painting as a didactic warning on the perils of life’s temptations.

The exhibition In Dreams Awake is inspired by this treasure of the early Renaissance. While Bosch’s painting is the muse for this exhibition, however, each work in the exhibition is its own entity and seemingly unrelated to the other works. Nonetheless, each artwork reflects elements expressed within Bosch’s work and like the disjointed images seen in dreams these individual visions unite to comment, like the bizarre scenes in Bosch’s triptych, on life itself. The exhibition In Dreams Awake thus becomes, in essence, a contemporary recitation of Bosch’s narrative.

Curated by Shane Golby and organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program. The AFA Travelling Exhibition program is supported by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
